Remembering Raylene Rankin


Back in our slightly younger days back in the town of Martensville, Saskatchewan, this song used to get a big rise out of the semi, mostly and hardly inebriates at town functions.  Sadly, Raylene Rankin passed away on September 30th after a battle with cancer.  Thanks for the memories Raylene.


About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

  1. I loved the Rankin Family growing up! Had their “North Country” album on cassette tape (cassette tape!!!) and literally played it till it fell apart. Nice song choice, my friend.

  2. Enjoyed the Rankins music and Raylene will be missed.
    Ps…the header is great!! lolololol

  3. I should clarify…the header featuring the Canucks and their ‘babyfaces’ is awesome.

  4. I got chills watching and listening to her. She must have been still too, young to lose!
